Stamps retain University of Saskatchewan fullback Charlie Power

The Calgary Stampeders have re-signed national fullback Charlie Power.

The University of Saskatchewan product played all 18 regular season games in 2019, as well as the Western Semi-Final. He finished third on the Stamps with 15 special teams tackles and also had one forced fumble. On offence, Power added career-high figures of four receptions for 27 yards.

“I am happy to be back with Calgary for another year,” Power said in a statement. “This organization has been my second family over the past eight years and I can’t wait to get back on the field in 2021 and reconnect with teammates, coaches and fans.”

Through seven seasons, the six-foot-three, 247-pound Power has made 85 appearances in the regular season and suited up for six playoff games. Power was originally selected in the fourth round, 28th overall by the Stamps in the 2013 CFL draft. The Okotoks, Alta., native has 69 special teams tackles over his career and blocked a punt in three of the last four seasons.

“Charlie is a mainstay of our team who does unheralded work for us both on offence and special teams,” Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel said. “He’s also a local product who does great work in the community and we’re pleased that he has agreed to remain with the Stamps.”
